Onkyo TX-NR686 7.2 Channel THX Certified Network A/V 4K Receiver Black

$349 at Amazon.

Also same price at other retailers. Price was lowered today. That time of year! This is a highly rated receiver. CNET gives the Onkyo 585 / 686 top ratings. Originally $550. New lineup coming soon so the current model is on a deep discount. This is actually cheaper than the TX-NR585 (lesser model) - lowest yet.

Same price at Best Buy and other retailers:

The cost of new model releases will be full retail. The cost of this unit right now makes it worth pulling the trigger. It sold for $500+ when first released. This model includes all current technology upgrades. I picked one up. Wanted the latest technology and features but not willing to pay full retail 😉. This was $440 prior to Sunday. I've been watching both the 585 and 686 models.

It may actually be March when new models become available

This is great receiver. Works great with Google Assistant. Best Buy reduced $200. Amazon is also having a matching price

Model number is: TX-NR686 and it's important that it appear in the title of your post and the body of your post, OP.

Plus, we've seen this at the same price at Newegg plus a $40 gift card.

Decent price, but if you have a local Fry's and aren't in an immediate rush this will get lower on promo over the next couple of months (at least that's been the pattern the last few years). Newegg also tends to offer solid Onkyo deals in this period.

Where did you see the 585 for $300? That's a good deal too. The 585 is $349 at Amazon now.
